Your tablescape is very pretty, Kammy. It looks sort of tropical and I like the casual relaxing feeling of it. Makes me think of Floria and Hawaii. The dishes are very pretty and I love the napkins. We like to visit the same stores, unfortunately, none of them are in our town that, is why I go crazy when I get into one since I have to travel quite a distance. We're both on a lookout on the Emma's Garland dishes. I was kicking myself for not buying the oval platter when I saw it....Christine

Congrats on the camera! You will have such fun.

You have a beautiful table setting and sure pulled together a nice grouping that looks great.

One day soon I hope to participate in the tablescape, but for now I really enjoy seeing all the ideas!

Kammy! this table is great. I love the colors you put together! Very eye appealing...

Janie's World said...

Your tablescape has a slightly asian feel for me. Very beautiful!

It's lucky you found out his camera worked before you gave it to him. You wouldn't want to give a present that was not in working order!

Kammy - I love, love, love the plates and bowls - and oh, by the way - I have them, too. :-D
They are indeed some of the prettiest plates I have ever seen.

The wicker glass holders are quite unusual. This is such a pretty table. Very well put together. Thanks so much for sharing.

Blessings, Barb

This is a very pretty tablescape. I just like the "feel" of it! I'm really liking those chargers. Nice!

marty39 said...

Kammy, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such kind and gracious comments on my TT. I see you love to thrift shop too, and we both seem to love TJMaxx and Marshalls. Such great places to find so many wonderful treasures. I hope you have a great week and a very Happy Mother's Day. Hugs, Marty

Hey, Kammy! Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your tablescape. I've got some of those 222 Fifth dishes also, as well as the infamous "Gollum" dishes from Big Lots. They are so great for pairing with lots of other patterns.

KBeau said...

Looks like I'm going to have to have some of that Gibson china. It seems so versatile.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

Those are really beautiful red floral dishes! The whole setting has a tropical, beachy look to it! I love it!

I am really wanting some of those Gibson dishes too! They are such a good price and classic and go with everything, but they will have to wait for now.


Lorna ~ Lace and Ivy Cottage said...

what a lovely table setting. Everything is coordinated perfectly, and to think you purchased the pieces at a variety of places. Well done!

Maryrose said...

Hi Kammy,
Yes those were the school colors. Yellow (gold and navy- I fudged with blue) He is my baby and the last. Thanks for your comments.
I love your table and I love your title. Your colors are wonderful. Happy blogging and I hope to hear from you again.

Wow- looks great Kammy!! I love those starfish- they seem to be all the rage in bloggy land though I haven't seen any when I go shopping- hum- might be caz I don't go shopping much in my little town!

Was your Co day today as gorgeous as ours in the SE? Wow- beautiful and sunny and warm! I have been wearing my little silky thermals forever it seems!!!


santamaker said...

Lively colors and the starfish touch really made it come to life. Very pretty tropical feel.

Patty said...

I love the tropical feel here, like British Colonial which I LOVE! Beautiful! That's so great that you get to use hubby's Father's Day gift. Good thinking hehe.

Martha said...

I think red dinnerware makes such a statement -- very lovely table

Robin said...

Oh my....I love your tablescape.
Your dishes are stunning......such vibrant reds. I thought your amaryllis was real......still I love it. I have got to do more shopping at those stores. :-)

Have a beautiful day.

Chandy said...

What a great looking table! The colors you chose and the extra touches are lovely. Awesome job!

I will have to look for those dishes. They're pretty!

Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer said...

Very pretty tablescape. I have the same chargers on the porch outdoors and they are really nice to use outdoors. Thank you for stopping over.

Candy said...

Nice setting and mums the word on the camera. Take her for a spin!

Happy MOM day to you,

ceekay said...

Thanks for stopping by. Your table is so pretty and I like the glass covers.
Nice camera...your secret is safe with me!!

Chari said...

Hi Girlfriend...

Ohhh yes...I love your red flower tablescape!!! Girl, that pretty red flower plate and bowl are gorgeous!!! I love the color and pattern...it's one that I would have chose!!! Looks really pretty with the white salad plate too!!! I love the rattan or wicker glass holders...so cute! Where did you find those? I've never seen anything like them before! Well my friend, you have certainly set a beautiful table...and again, I love, love, love your "red flowers" dishes!!!

Read the sweet note that you left on my Mother's Day tablescape...thank you so much for coming by and taking a peek!!! Sure do appreciate all of your sweet comments too!!!

Sending you my very best wishes for a Happy Mother's Day, my friend!
PS...have to tell you that I just spent that last half hour or so catching up on all of your posts that I missed! I left you notes on each one! Hehe!!!

Blondie's Journal said...


This is a really pretty table! The red dishes are bold but feminine too! I love the woven placemats~I think that is what gives this a little tropical look as well as your centerpiece. This tablescape would look great in a restaurant in the Bahamas~and I mean that as a compliment!

Thanks for leaving me your comments! Have a wonderful weekend!! :-D


BECKY said...

Wow, Kammy!! This is beautiful and just my kind of tablescape!! The starfish are a great touch, and I love, love, love, the glasses!! I think they're a throwback to some they used to make years ago, but much improved!!

The rich colors just speak to me!!

Have a lovely day!!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

How beauiful. Your dishes are gorgeous. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.
It is nice to meet you!

You are fortunate that I don't live nearby because I would be rapping on your front door...just to ask if I could come in and see what's going on. Beg a cup of tea..or coffee.. and check everything out!! How beautiful to live in such an area..my view is of house...after house..after house! I was raised in the country so I MISS it so much! You are so very lucky!

Nice colors and texture! Really pretty tablescape~

Zoey said...

I love those dishes!
Very pretty table.

Libby Murphy said...

Oh I am so into squares! I just wish it didn't cost double to mail square envelopes. Your tablescape is really lovely and so inviting. I like those napkins too. Great Job!
Happy Twirls

Dana and Daisy said...

you shop at some of my favorite places! very pretty!

Kim @ Manning Family Tree said...

I love, love, love your Fleur Rouge plates. If I wasn't on a plate diet, I might just have to run to TJ Maxx to see if I could find me some. I'm resisting the temptation, but it is sooooo hard. The Big Lot Gibson plates are a great find. I think almost everyone out in tablescape blog land has them by now. I know I do. And they still carry them at Big Lots (for those that don't have them, but want them). Your tablescape is fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

A Very beautiful tablescape! I see you shop at all my favorite stores! I just love the unusual things and great bargains we can find at them!

Great job!


Kathleen Ellis said...

Kammy, this is so pretty! I love the floral mixed with the rattan chargers and the rattan around the glasses...did the glasses come with that around them?

Hubby's new camera works quite well!
Happy Mother's Day!

Great table setting, I love the dishes. Anyone would feel special eating at your table.

Both of the recipes I posted are very easy to make, I hope you'll let me know when you make them and tell me how you liked them.

Have a great weekend.


Fifi Flowers said...

Love your table... FUN with the starfish!
ENJOY your weekend!

Carrie said...

The napkins are a great accent with the Fleur Rouge china. Wonderful setting!

Christi @ A Southern Life said...

Very pretty. Love the colors and the starfish are an extra special touch!

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Oh it is all so pretty! Love the colors, dishes and even the tjmaxx centerpiece! :)

Thanks for spelling it all out for us letting us know where everything came from. We truly might just to copy it all, you know! :)

Kathleen said...

Hi Kammy.
I remember being here..the mail box in the header!
Beautiful table, the red dishes are so pretty and you put everything together beautifully!
Thanks for the visit to my blog!
Happy Mother's Day..

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

I love those square dishes! Everything looks so pretty. I agree with you, you had to try out the camera to see if it was good enough for him! You probably need to keep trying it out until Father's Day! You asked about my blog being full page. I just don't use the cute, decorative pages that all of ya'll use. I'm really kind of boring, but I've gotten used to it, so I've left it that way. Thanks for coming by. laurie
